Tells the true and untold story of prolific rapper, actor, poet and activist Tupac Shakur. The film follows Shakur from his early days in New York City to his evolution into being one of the world's most recognized and influential voices before his untimely death at the age of 25. Against all odds, Shakur's raw talent, powerful lyrics and revolutionary mind-set propelled him into becoming a cultural icon whose legacy continues to grow long after his passing. ALL EYEZ ON ME stars Kat Graham, Lauren Cohan, Hill Harper, Jamal Woolard, Danai Gurira and Demetrius Shipp Jr. as Tupac Shakur.
On Twitter, Jada Pinkett Smith stated that the film contained many inaccuracies about her relationship with Tupac Shakur and why he left for Los Angeles. Smith said that Tupac never read the poem he read to her character in the film, and she never knew it existed until it was published in his book. She also said that she never attended one of Tupac's shows at his request, and there was no backstage argument. She did, however, praise the performances of Demetrius Shipp Jr. and Kat Graham.

Now I enjoy those biopics for many years, the buddy holly story, straight outta Compton, Ray and a whole bunch of others, but this lifeless, mean-spirited hack of a mess brings nothing new to the table, not only it's a disgrace to the legacy of the great tupac shakur, it is an insult to anyone's intelligence, shipp jr is fine as tupac shakur, but the rest of the actors are terrible, the screenplay is an absolute mess, the story is out of control, the writing is predicable and the editing is silly, I Agree with Jada pinkett smith, this movie is a disaster, more life a lifetime TV movie then a movie itself, this movie is just a total disaster at all cost, what a joke, shame on everyone who is involved in this film I give it a D- one of the year's worst films.
